Can speaker sounds improve the perception of traffic noise?

Published: 2019-02-02

A research project in Australia has investigated if speaker sounds can be used to improve the perception of noise. Two approaches were tested, one was to retune the noise to give it a more musical character, and one was active noise reduction (i.e. cancellation of the phases). An etnographic study provided insights as to how the experience was affected. The project report is available  online containing links to interesting sound examples.
